Intoxication aux piles-bouton : une analyse de 4030 cas

Abstract : Button batteries are more and more available for a large public, and the ingestion can make severe oesophagal damages. This cohort restrospective study has been made to describe the cases of ingestion, especially severe cases, to understand the mechanisms of damages. During the 15 years period between 1999 and 2015, 4620 cases were reported to the French poison centers. Button cells were ingested by 4030 of these patients. 64.8% of patients were under 5 years old, more boys than girls (52.2%). 4.32% of the intoxications had an intermediate severity, 0.57% were severe intoxications. 71.7% had a treatment. We can see that the portion of symptomatic patients is increasing on the period of study, without explaining this phenomen. This study is the first of several others, managing to determinate a protocol of treatment in France.
